Free. I'll be performing three songs or more, depending on how many performers sign up. "Evan hosts this Cabbagetown tradition. A wide variety of performers sing and play everything from horns and keys to banjos and harmonicas."
linden tree micro-tour
Coming in May/June: the Linden Tree Spring Micro-Tour. What's a micro-tour, you ask? For those of us unable to travel long distances or indeed book "proper" shows, the micro-tour is a way of performing to as many people as possible in a concentrated time frame, with the bonus of eating in your own home and sleeping in your own bed. As I conceive it, it'll entail playing as many Toronto (and region) open stages as I can during a four-week period. To further add to the intrigue, each gig will feature a fresh batch of songs: there will be no repeats! And if that's not enough, at every show I will debut a new song—either an original or a cover. All performances will be recorded, and I'll post a best-of-tour selection on my music page later this summer.
Dates are listed below. One caveat: since these are all open stages, which can come and go like the wind, all listings are tentative until the day after the show. :-) Your best bet is to check the same resource I used to plan the itinerary, Gary 17's exhaustive Toronto Moon webzine. If it's listed there the day of, chances are it's a go. Hope to see you on tour!
Child-friendly, all-ages. $5 per person, $8 for families, or pay what you can (includes coffee and cookies). I'll be playing one or two songs. "Don Heights provides a relaxed venue for local performers. Each month, on the second Saturday, we have a main act followed by an open mic for anyone who wants to contribute a performance piece."
